You have to understand, "silly" lives in a very black and white world. In her world;
All republican's/conservative's are evil. They made their monies illegally, they stole it from the down trodden, they are tax cheats, they spend some of their monies to pass laws that help them and punish democrats they are war mongers.
On the other hand;
All democrats/left wing liberals are caring. They made their monies by hard work, the eschew tax benefits, they take care of the needy, they live very inconspicuous life styles,
Peace
Congratulations Eed, you finally get it. I'm proud of you.

If the wealthy paid their taxes, the country would be in good shape and everyone could have universal single payer healthcare.
Imagine a country where Americans don't have to agonize about going to the doctor?
Imagine all the people, living in harmony? You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..

It really was disgusting. The Republicans shut down government then have the nerve to berate a park ranger doing her job. Disgusting does not begin to describe his behavior or that of Michelle Bachmann's photo ops. Neither of them understands how public law and chain of command works.

It would have been more humane to have just put a pillow over her face and suffocated her.

If you wanted to die, why wouldn't you just want to get it over with? You'd want to suffer instead?

Do you think anyone would choose starvation over a quicker death no matter what their mental state?

Republicans Shut Down Prefrontal Cortex
Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an escalation of the stalemate gripping Washington, House Republicans voted today to shut down the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that controls reasoning and impulses.
The resolution, which passed with heavy Tea Party support, calls for a partial shutdown of the brain, leaving the medulla and cerebellum, sometimes referred to as the “reptilian brain,” up and running.
The Tea Party caucus cheered the passage of the bill, which was sponsored by Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who called the measure “long overdue.”
House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) offered no timetable for restarting the prefrontal cortex, telling reporters,“It will most certainly remain shut down during any negotiations with the President. That’s the only leverage we have.”
Representative Bachmann agreed:“The President can go ahead and put a gun to our heads. There’s nothing there.”
While the G.O.P.’s decision to shut down the prefrontal cortex rattled Wall Street, the neuroscientist Davis Logsdon said it should be seen as little more than a symbolic vote, noting,“It’s actually been shut down since the 2008 election.”

Whats the point when the same "fools" spending the money are the same "fools" as setting the debt limit.
Cut the spending till you don't have to raise it. Then as it goes down lower it. Borrowing $1.3 to $1.7 trillion dollars every year is insane. There is enough money coming in every month to pay the bills. Stop borrowing money for all the bullshit!

Galt is against others paying to keep people alive or pay for their treatment. That is the essence of insurance; everyone puts into the pot, everyone is covered. What is so hard for you to understand?
"Whatever" claims that Terry Schiavos husband paid personally to keep her alive for 14 years! Did her parents pay with their own money to keep her alive and show her lolling her head around on tv for 14 years? I doubt it. She was dead, let her die with dignity instead of being made an example of religious zealotry.
You people are sick in the head.
Lily, you'd be a liar if you said you'd watch a wounded animal starve to death even if they had a head injury.

But we know liberals have such little regard for human life, it's understandable your stance on how Terri was sentenced to die.

Out of sight, out of mind. That's all that matters.

"Obama calls in lawmakers on political crisis

US President Barack Obama speaks during a press conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC, October 8, 2013
3 hours ago

Washington (AFP)- President Barack Obama is inviting all Republican and Democratic lawmakers to the White House for discussions on defusing a dual showdown over the shuttered government and raising the debt ceiling.

Obama will begin the process by meeting minority Democrats in the House of Representatives later on Wednesday, a White House official said.

Republicans in the House and members of both parties in the Senate will be invited in for talks "in the coming days," the official said on condition of anonymity.

The meetings come as Washington lurches close to an October 17 deadline to raise the US government's statutory borrowing limit.

Failure to do so could see the United States default on its obligations for the first time in its history and spark what the White House warns will be dire economic consequences which could spread around the globe.

The US government, meanwhile, has been shut for eight days, after Congress failed to agree on a budget to finance operations by an October 1 deadline...."

The liberal media couldn't make it look more unpopular if they had taken a course on how to do it - 24/7 they used every possible angle to remind us how unpopular they, themselves, had made that war just to make sure Democrats had every possible advantage to become weasels for political gain.
When was the last time you saw any coverage - much less 24/7 coverage - from the liberal media of the Afghanistan and Pakistan wars?
It's like those wars don't even exist.
So stop being so gullible and acting like one of the liberal media's stooges.
I've grown to like you after last night, so at least try to act like you're the same normal person and don't disappoint me.
"Liberal Media", how weak.

Pakistan War?? That's funny!! Tell us about this war. The Pakastanis hate AMerica, Bush propped up the Dictator Musharref for years. But a War?? Did you get that from FAUX insane media??

Just like the 1.3 million bikers that showed up for the Million Muslim March to celebrate their 9/11 attack on the United States(for which only 26 muslims showed up), this will be ignored by the media.
